Transportation Information

Updated August 1, 2018.

The basics: DSST does not run these buses. The buses are provided and managed by DPS. Keep in mind there is only 1 bus route this school year. The only supported region is the West Region. Therefor, the bus stops listed below are the ONLY ones available through DSST. This region has a couple of morning and afternoon buses for the same route. The first afternoon bus is for students who don't have an after-school intervention. The second afternoon bus is for students who have an after-school intervention. We release early on Thursday, but DPS doesn't change their bus schedule. Therefore, on Thursday, your student would be released from school at 1:30pm, and the first bus home leaves at 4:10pm. Students can take the bus every day, or just some days. They can take the morning and not the afternoon, or vice versa. In the past, DPS buses ran on time most days, but on some days, especially when they have subsitute drivers, they arrive late, early, or in rare cases, never arrive at all. On these days, the best thing to do is call DPS transportation at 720-423-4699. The buses start on the first day of school, Thursday, August 16, 2018.

New this year: Students NEED TO HAVE their Plus-Pass. Students can get their Plus-Pass from the Front Desk. 

Lo básico: DSST no ejecuta estos buses. Los autobuses son provistos y administrados por DPS. Tenga en cuenta que solo hay 1 ruta de autobús este año escolar. La única región admitida es la Región Oeste. Por lo tanto, las paradas de autobús enumeradas a continuación son las ÚNICAS disponibles a través de DSST. Esta región tiene un par de autobuses por la mañana y por la tarde para la misma ruta. El primer autobús de la tarde es para estudiantes que no tienen una intervención después de la escuela. El segundo autobús de la tarde es para estudiantes que tienen una intervención después de la escuela. Salimos temprano el jueves, pero DPS no cambia su horario de autobuses. Por lo tanto, el jueves, su estudiante saldrá de la escuela a la 1:30 p.m., y el primer autobús a casa parte a las 4:10 p.m. Los estudiantes pueden tomar el autobús todos los días, o solo algunos días. Pueden tomar la mañana y no la tarde, o viceversa. En el pasado, los autobuses DPS funcionaban a tiempo la mayoría de los días, pero en algunos días, especialmente cuando tienen conductores subsiguientes, llegan tarde, temprano o, en casos excepcionales, nunca llegan. En estos días, lo mejor que puede hacer es llamar al servicio de transporte de DPS al 720-423-4699. Los autobuses comienzan el primer día de clases, el jueves 16 de agosto de 2018.

Nuevo este año: Los estudiantes NECESITAN tener su Plus-Pass. Los estudiantes pueden obtener su Plus-Pass desde la recepción.

Parent Portal

Denver Public Schools (DPS) offers parents the Parent Portal, a program that allows you to access accurate, current, and confidential information about your child’s school attendance, grades, class assignments, and more. Please see the attachments below for the Parent Portal Agreement, which must be signed in front of a school staff member to be valid, and a quick reference guide from DPS. Please contact the Parent Portal Hotline with questions: 720-423-3163.

Note that the Parent Portal is separate from the Student Portal, which allows students to access their own information. Students may contact their Deans with questions or if in need of assistance. Learn more about the Parent/Student Portal by downloading the Parent Toolkit: English, Español. The Portal Team has also coordinated a variety of training resources for parents/guardians. Please visit their website for additional resources.
